The Bay of Fires wines were born of a desire to showcase the best possible cool climate varietal wines Tasmania can offer, combining fruit intensity, refinement and persistence of flavour. The backbone of the 2009 Chardonnay is from the Bay of Fires Vineyard Block 14 but gains notable structure and fruit drive from our East Coast and Coal River Valley parcels.

Winery Tasting Notes


Medium straw with a very pale green hue.


This wine displays intense fruit aromas of white peach and lemon curd. Natural fermentation in French oak barriques and extended time on yeast lees add complex doughy nuances to the bouquet.


The palate is smooth and delicate with lemon, grapefruit and buttered toast characters.

Winemaking Note

Sourced partially from one of the coolest grape growing regions in Tasmania; Pipers River, Block 14 produces fruit with excellent flavour concentration and intensity of natural acidity – true cold climate style. The East Coast parcel in this wine provides richness and depth of fruit with the classic Coal River Valley lemon curd character clearly evident. The 2009 vintage produced a tiny crop with intense fruit flavour concentration and our resultant wine is true to the style of bright, complex Tasmanian Chardonnay.

Out of extraordinary challenges, come exceptional results.

It's no easy task growing vines in Tasmania – it requires lots of passion, hard work, commitment and knowledge. But from the vineyards nurtured with these four qualities comes truly remarkable fruit and the Bay of Fires range of wines.

Our vines enjoy a cool, maritime climate that provides steadier ripening conditions, however, with it come the challenges of lower sunlight levels and a greater variation in terroir – the very complexities that spur on our determination.

All the vines are painstakingly pruned and trellised in the single cordon vertical shoot (Guyot) technique to protect them against the elements that are as fickle as the winds that carry them.

Just like the sub-regions of our island state, every vineyard has a unique and distinctive character forged out of its soil, its climate and of course its careful management. So we believe it is our job then to bring together an entire team, all of whom ensure the varietal characteristics are revealed, preserved and celebrated in every wine we create for you.


Find balance and beauty will follow.

When so much has gone into growing excellent fruit, it then falls on the winemaking team to capture that quality by creating exceptional wines.

Across the entire team we share our ideas, our knowledge and our curiosity to bring out the best in every parcel of fruit. We balance acidity against sweetness to create delicate Rieslings. In our Chardonnay we seek a harmony of mouthfeel and fruit, and of course then there’s the Pinot Noir – a challenging grape to grow but one which amplifies its terroir beautifully and delivers a wine of superb complexity, structure and romance.

In balance with the qualities of each variety, we strive to echo the terroir, and the essence of Tasmania. It's winemaking 'on the edge', but in the face of such challenges the rewards speak for themselves.
